mount only or with the 110mm mak shown?

arief
The price is for the whole set, should be here by next week, the scope is a 100mm dia MAK and the mounting method is actually secured by a dovetail like all other Vixen mounting, which means you can replace the scope with other smaller scope like the W.O. 66SD APO, but you need to purchase a Vixen Universal Dovetail Plate at $120.00 and you can be at your choice of scope.

Cheers :lol:

Sorry, type too fast, is actually a 110mm Mak liked Arief mentioned !

I have mentioned the Skypod came with either with a table model or tripod model, if you need tripod, just order a tripod model, as this is a new product, Vixen has not advise me which model of tripod to use, I believe the tripod should be a common tripod in the Vixen inventory, you may need to pay more than $400 for a tripod, the cost is for the freight charges , packing and handling, I can advise you when I receive the sample.

Cheers :lol:

That was my question - whether I can add a tripod to the table model if needed in future. ... From your post I gather that the Table model is not easily adaptable to a tripod and the tripod model does not come with a tripod?
I think a HAL-110 or Surveyor tripod would do a good job here though ... :)

Thanks for clarifying.

In most cases, Vixen table model like the Sphinx Mount table model can be replaced by a tripod, except for this case, my info is not sufficient to advise you which model of tripod can be used, so, I will suggest that if you have to use it with a tripod, just order a tripod model and save you at least $200 & above.

Hi Vincent,

The price is for a whole set, we can't sell it seperately, if you need only the mount, you can purchase the Sphinx Mount table model which will cost you almost $3000.00
